Taking a fresh approach to some of the classic questions in ecology, this book states that much more remains to be done before complete answers can be provided to questions like: What determines where a species lives? And what determines its abundance? The methods described and deployed in this book point the way forward. Topics covered include population regulation, density-dependence, the ecological niche, resource and interference competition, habitat fragmentation and the ecological effects of environmental stress. Originally published as an issue of Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society.
This volume would make a wonderful text for a graduate seminar in population dynamics; and can serve as a launching pad for further readings on the subject. Ecoscience
